I believe the law is 90db at idle. As far as I know though, we really don't have any problems down here with enforcement. None of my friends have ever even been questioned about it and I've never seen the marine police administering a test in this area.

No speed laws except in small creeks.

The only ramp I've ever used is in my neighborhood, which is a nice ramp but a tiger might be big for it. There are a bunch of other ramps around but I couldn't tell you which is best since i dont have experience with them. I could always ask around though.

The water is very clean. It has a nice white sandy bottom and it is one of the deepest areas of the chesapeake. It gets to 125' deep in the patuxent alone.

Names, how about "Terminal Velocity" or "Defense Mechanism"

I've always liked terminal velocity, but I think its been used too much.

Defense Mechanism is a good one, I'll add it to the list. Thanks!

Yeah, it probably has been used a lot. Not a lot of Velocitys in my area so I've never seen it. I've see "aquaholic" a few times though!

You could always name it "Maximum Celerity" just to keep people guessing!
